    Long distance pick ups

    Yesterday I was driving EX Large only and i kept getting pings that were 20 min+ away . I declined all of them and it destroyed my acceptance rate. Now today I am getting no pings. I thought UBER was going to pay extra for long distance pick ups. I used to get a message that said “premium fee...

    Support message Warning

    Yesterday I received a message from Uber saying I made one of my passengers feel unsafe due to speeding. Seriously I never speed. Often Pax tell me about other drivers who drove fast and crazy and they thank me for driving safely. Anyways this is the second time I received this warning message...

    Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter are here

    Just gave some people a ride to a high school in Panorama City. I asked them why there was such a huge law enforcement presence at a high school and was told that it's the Secret Service. The Carters are at the high school. It's related to a documentary the kids made there. Anyways thought it...

    People who think you are going the long way to charge them more.

    Question- so when a passenger asks me to deviate from the original route and go 10 min out of the way to pick up their friend Should I stop the car and ask them to add a stop to the route? Is there a benefit to updating the app with the additional stop or will I get paid more regardless?

    Service Animal mess

    In the last 3 months I have had 6 PAX with Service Animals(Dogs). The small lap dogs are fine but how can Uber force us to let huge white long hair dogs into our vehicles. No matter how conscientious the pet owning PAX is, the dog makes a huge mess, even when the PAX has a towel to protect...

    Incentive Disappears?

    I drive LA county and was working on an incentive of 40 rides for $72. I took a PAX to OC and my incentive disappeared from my drivers screen. Do rides in OC not count towards incentives? The incentive better come back when I cross back into LA county. Anyone have info on this to put my mind...

    Incorrect PAX complaint

    I received an Uber support message saying. " One of your riders let us know that they felt uncomfortable with your driving speed on a recent trip and for the cleanliness of your vehicle." -Driving style is subjective and had they complained solely based on my driving I would let it go. Even...

    Unknowingly created surge

    So last night a guy on the street wanted me to take him somewhere, so I told him he has to do it through the app. However every time he did the request another driver kept getting assigned. So my potential passenger kept cancelling hoping I would be assigned. I mean I was right there next to...

    Every one have their own surge????

    I also experience a similar surge allergy. What I am thinking about doing is powering off my phone, drive to a surge zone , then turn my phone on and go online . Has anyone tried this tactic?

    " Stop New Requests" button gone?

    The offline/online is gone while on a trip-that's normal. The strange thing was ,when on a trip , there are 3 lines on top right corner . If clicked there is an option to stop new requests. It's still not there

    " Stop New Requests" button gone?

    As many experienced, last night in the Greater LA area, it was stacked pings non/stop. Not even a 2 minute break/ gap between riders. Strangest thing was the "Stop New Requests" button was missing. Prior to last night I would constantly get stacked pings and So I am very familiar with the "Stop...

    SCV burning for 2 hrs now...fake or not

    Santa Clarita/ Valencia is my home. Last night was the first night ever I stayed in Santa Clarita the whole night. I made $250 from 6:30 pm to 2:30am. Candy Cane Lane was crazy popular for drop offs and pick ups and also lots of Christmas parties. Lots of short rides but they were all surging...

    I usually start trip before driving towards but if I am heading in that direction I dont Is Lyft the only ride share co using Bailout? Does Uber use Bailout?
  16. Driver@Valencia


    I'm so sick of this Bailout software program. It used to only happen occasionally but now it's happening so much that I worry it will kick in on every ping. Just now I got a long trip request. I was super happy. I start driving towards pax and about 2 min later- " rider has cancelled". I was...

    Pax tip rating

    Here's something to suggest- Uber should have a separate category- " Average tip" . That amount should be flashed up in the pax ride request screen, along with passenger rating and distance. I think it would encourage tips if pax knew that only new ants or bad ants would accept their...

    Lyft sucks

    Yep, that's what I do , but even then I am stupid and really go out of ny way to find them. I would say I get more riders cancelling than I charge no-shows.

    Avg tip %?

    I would say, for me,tips aren't based on a percentage like restaurants. I get like $2 for rides that cost $3 to $20. Over $20 rides I get a $4 or $5 tip. Cool thing is sometimes, when I drive a middle age couple to dinner for base fair , they give me a tip worth more than the base fare. Like a...

    Cheap Gas $279.00to

    I saw something like that last night in a part of town where gas is normally higher like on Pico. That's why I took notice of the great rate. I think gas price went down by 3%to 4% last night.
